Description Jan Kucera (Kozuch) 2013-02-16 10:46:31 UTC
Special characters in Czech diacritics sort to the end, which is wrong.

Example here:

Current situation: A,a ... d, á, č, Č, ď

Desired order: A,a,á ... C, Č, c, č, ď
Comment 1 db [inactive,noenotif] 2013-02-16 11:00:51 UTC
There is no special sort order for languages yet, you can override this, when adding to the Common.js:

mw.config.set( 'tableSorterCollation', {'Č':'C', ...} );
Comment 2 Jan Kucera (Kozuch) 2013-02-16 16:21:30 UTC
Ok, but this should be solved globally, for all users by default without having to do an extra setting (via common.js or whatever else).
Comment 3 Michael M. 2013-02-18 09:25:38 UTC
Doing this for all languages isn't easy at all: For example in German "Ä" is considered as a variant of "A", so it should be sorted at the beginning, while in Swedish it is an own character that comes after the "Z".
Comment 4 Jan Kucera (Kozuch) 2013-02-18 12:13:19 UTC
I guess we need to specify the default sorting for every language separately.
